Whew! What a crazy and exciting past week. It felt totally great to get back to work - albeit for 5 straight night shifts! Who cares, its just a gift and total joy to have only 4 patients and actually be able to be fully attentive to each of them. It makes such a difference, I don't even know how to explain it. Its scary to think that the hospitals are trying to get rid of the California ratio laws! That would be going backwards! If only the management could look past the bottom line ($) and see all the studies that prove that radios allow for better patient satisfaction and safer patient care. Anyways, the RN's here aren't done fighting, that's for sure. -End Rant-   :) 

I made a point to take a day to see San Fran, and it was worth it. It is super beautiful there, but it really does get chilly! Down by the water was freezing. I did get to eat some delish food, walk miles and miles of the city, and take a cruise on the bay. I met an awesome retired nurse on the cruise! 

I was going to have a great night barhopping - until my "little nap" at 6pm went until 12am! Gotta get back on a normal day schedule. I think I'm ready to get back into some kind of routine again, one way or the other. The traveling and sightseeing is fun but the hotel-hopping is exhausting! I really can't complain, though. I sure can't wait to get my paycheck and get my budget back in order.  

Anyways, tomorrow I'm going kayaking on the Monterey Bay, and then me and the kitties are heading back to LA. I'm awaiting news of jobs! For now I have to be flexible as everything is up in the air. I'm hoping to make it to Nags Head for fam vacation in July, but I don't want to miss out on a job opportunity if its available. Keep your fingers crossed for me! 

PS- I'm not putting my cats in boarding again. There wasn't anything wrong with it, and the woman I boarded them with was very nice. But they were really stressed out when I picked them up and I just hate being away from them!!
